Serbian Novak Djokovic, the world’s first tennis player, is the champion of the French Open this year. In the final, 4 hours and 11 minutes later, he defeated the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas with a 6:7 (6), 2:6, 6:3, 6:2, 6:4 reversal.
For the 34-year-old Djokovic, this is the 19th Grand Slam title won in his career, only one point behind Nadal of Spain and Roger Federer of Switzerland, who are tied for the first place in history. However, with Sunday’s victory, Djokovic became the first player in the Open era to win four Grand Slams at least twice. In 2016, he won the first French Open.
“The atmosphere is exciting again. I want to thank my team, my family, and everyone who is responsible for what we did today. Tennis is very good and I played against two great champions. It was very difficult for me. And demanding “I showed that I can always return to the game. This is the dream I managed to achieve today,” Djokovic said.
